Dear VitalMTB'ers!

Since certain references to our country popped up in this comment section, I would like to apologize on behalf on our local MTB community about the moronic comments of a certain user here. We know him, we laugh about him, but we are not like him. Yes, we were a third world country (now trying to make it to the second world smile) ), but we're not all intellectually challenged, most of us strive to be good people and a lot of us truly love mountainbiking. This guy is not at all representative for our scene. If any of you have the curiosity to find out how awesome riding here actually is, holler at us and we promise we'll be good hosts and you'll return back home thinking how to come back. Don't take my word for it, but ask our friends from Vermont, Colorado, California and actually from all over the world.

From Romania with Love,
Mx

@lickmycrinkle This dude is a joke on the forums in our local community, now he just takes all the embarrassment to an international level. It's really funny to see him write about speed and product management, while 1. he couldn't properly ride if his life depended on this, not to mention speed 2. the ”product management” he does actually refers to some Walmart-type bicycles that happen to be some of the worst of their kind. He's also on a personal crusade against the new-look Nomad since it was launched and believes the ”knows” what Santa Cruz ”should've done”. It's also comical and contradictory that he uses references to Trump all over the place, while he actually is a local cycling Trump, but minus the public support. Oh, the irony to say something like that when back home everybody laughs when they hear of you. Don't give him too much attention; I guess he feeds on that. It's like when you poke a bear, get a huge ”get lost” paw across the face and then whine that the bear isn't ”a good guy” like he's supposed to be.

Added a comment about product review Made in Canada, Ready for the Trail - Devinci's $1,699 Kobain Hardtail 1/21/2021 1:51 AM

At this price, with a Canadian-made frame, the package is incredible value. Upgrading to better brakes is easy and you can choose what you like. I ride a Nukeproof Scout 290 (which btw is incredibly fun and was my go-to bike in the winter months, rarely missing my Foxy) and the excellent and pretty old Deore XT M785 brakes proved to be enough on most occasions. Otherwise, how many people do you think feel the need for the XT shifter's capabilities? And what the last time you really felt the difference between a dual compound tire and a fancy foldable 3C? People run them at the wrong pressures most times anyway, so I don't think it's something to cry about. As for the color, it's a matter of taste. We get enough boring color schemes in the industry, it's good that every now and then a company does different things.

Cheers!

Goddamn it, another assignment! I need to dig up my tape recorder (sic), but let's see what can be done! :D I know that the media bubble is different from the riders' bubble and I'm in this last one. Never thought about it this way...

By the way, thanks for all the nice stuff you guys have brought us throughout the years. The Vital feed is the daily World Cup bread for many a hardcore fan in every race. I tip my hat to you!

Oh, sorry! It seems I forgot about how you're supposed to get the audio for the slideshows, stupid me. I know about the mega lockdown, as I am here in Leogang with our federation, trying to poach some shots myself. I just hope the UCI doesn't fine me for all the, erm, ”video” on the Instastories these days, or I'll end up a broke man! smile)) Cheers for clearing it up, Spomer!

Erm, what happened to the trademark Vital slideshows? Honest question, I miss them.

In case it wasn't obvious from my first comment, I tip my hat to you, dude! Much Love from Romania! In case you ever take a trip over here, holler and you get free housing, food and guiding, plus the sight of a shitload of old bikes and parts that struggle to become a museum. Spomer must have my e-mail, just in case, offer applies to him or any other VitalMTB staff member too.

Thanks VitalMTB for what you are doing for the community! This feature and its comment section are yet another proof why this sport is so fucking great. Chapeau!

No, it was not! The narrow rear was a strong feature of the bike and it was emphasized as such in Dirt Mag.

It was posted as a challenge in one of our local FB groups. It seems I managed to kill the vibe for everyone else. Either that, or people don't give a damn. I can't wait for the next one, hopefully there is fuel in the RAW tank. Have I mentioned how I love Vital? I love Vital! :D
